The 7th Street Entry is a smaller venue (capacity : 250) attached to the side of the historic First Avenue (capacity : 1500) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This space was once used as a restaurant area in the bus station as well as a coat room before it became the music venue that is known today as “The Entry” among the locals. Formally the Greyhound Cafe, “The Entry” opened its door in March of 1980 under the club “Sam’s” as a venue that catered to more local bands. “The Entry”, as it is called, is a venue where smaller and lesser known bands will play (more popular bands play the First Avenue mainroom). Many musicians have started their careers playing at the 7th Street Entry.

Several recordings have been recorded live at the Entry, including Hüsker Dü’s first album “Land Speed Record”, the song “Cables” on Big Black’s “Atomizer” album, Rifle Sport’s live album “Live At The Entry, Dead At The Exit”, and Minneapolis-based band Motion City Soundtrack’s live DVD “Commit This To Memory”.
